This coming weekend is promised to be hot . .95 all week and weekend so Im thinking this may be a great time to go play in the cool shut-ins at JS state park. The park is located near Ironton, MO, about 3.5 hours away so we will need to carpool and split gas money. The east fork of the black river runs through the park and over boulders creating a beautiful place to wade and swim. There are also hiking trails and picnic areas. I will set the date for Sunday but if people indicate they like Saturday better we can always switch it. Elephant Rocks State Park is also nearby and they also have a nice trail with spectacular massive boulders and scenery! If we leave around 9:30 or 10 we can get there grab a sandwich and be ready to take a dip by the time its pretty toasty.
